I'm 33 old musician from Finland. I have been playing guitar since I was 12 - 13 year old kid.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
maybe my first biggest guitar hero was Gary Moore. My first favourite bands when I was little kid were maybe Queen, Genesis and Van Halen.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I have a band Riveryman www.myspace.com/riverymanband which plays Neoprog. Riveryman in facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Riveryman/154999584572218 We have done one CD with Riveryman. Our debut CD is called Magic World and French label MUSEA has released it in the year 2009. Musea website: http://www.musearecords.com/. We are also doing our second CD with Riveryman. It has been quite long project cause I/we have done also other projects at the same time. Our second CD is gonna be more progressive than the Magic World.

You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Steve Hackett "To Watch The Storms". My one favourite song from this album is "Brand New" and I love the acoustic parts in this album and of course also when Steve's electric guitar is singing. This album has some strange feeling/power that gives me new energy to carry on.
